Wide blue trousers by Joline Jolink

Wide blue trousers by Joline JolinkOne of those glorious spring days, just begging to sit on a terrace and have a drink. I wore my new wide blue trousers, which are very lightweight and great for wearing with sneakers. That Saturday I had to run a few errands in town (on my bike as riding a bike is very good for my knee and walking isn’t). When I was on my way home, I stopped to have a cappuccino at Café de Zwaan. My neighbour Loes pulled up next to me on her bike. Me: “Hi Loes, I am about to have lunch. Care to join me?” And she answered: “Always a good idea. Where?” I knew Café de Zwaan did lunch, so we “parked” the bikes.

Aleida blazer by All Saints

Aleida blazer by All SaintsNext to my COS top (see previous post) I also bought this jacket in London. It is called the Aleida blazer by All Saints. A shop which I thought wasn’t in The Netherlands and had a good reputation. That was a mistake. Not the reputation or the Aleida blazer but the presumption the brand wasn’t available in my country. It is. Big shop in Amsterdam, Heiligeweg. Plus easy ordering online. Learned that for next time. Ordering from the UK is pretty good for us, far better than ordering from the USA (shipping and customs kill the fun in shopping). Whether that will still be this easy after Brexit is implemented…..
